Supporting Our Community

The Mountain Housing Council of Tahoe Truckee (MHC) is a project of the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation and brings together 28 diverse partners to accelerate solutions to achievable local housing.

The MHC’s goal is to build on the needs identified in the 2016 Truckee North Tahoe Regional Workforce Housing Needs Assessment and tackle the unique and pressing challenges of housing in the North Tahoe-Truckee region, including availability, variety, and affordability.

Housing Needs

In the North Tahoe-Truckee region, there is a need for housing at every income level, from homeless to middle-income salary earners.

One of the Mountain Housing Council’s goals is to help more people understand that there is a gap between affordable housing programs and available housing in the North Tahoe-Truckee region. People who fall into this gap make too much to qualify for affordable housing developments but too little to buy or rent market-rate homes.

Upcoming Speaker Series Events

September 14: Alternative Building Materials: Hempcrete

Hempcrete or hempline is a lightweight biocomposite material used as a breathable material for construction and insulation for energy efficient homes. Greg Flavall, co-founder of Hemp Technologies Global, not only supports ADU construction to create more affordable housing opportunities with pre-approved site plans and green materials, but he has built the first fully permitted hemp homes in the USA, Australia, New Zealand, and Mexico. Come find out more about housing opportunities provided by Hempcrete at this free Lunch-n-Learn webinar.
